Control Room

A well equipped, sonically neutral control room is essential for any recording project and our room has been designed and outfitted to meet those requirements.  The room is pie wedge shaped with a 10 foot front wall and a 16 foot back wall.  To avoid  acoustic reflections, the control room window is placed on the right and the front half of the room is covered with sound absorbant foam by Aurlex.  The back wall is acoustically reflective with diffusion and bass traps providing an optimal listening environment.

We provide a choice of digital and analog recording platforms.  A 32 channel Avid HDX ProTools system provides a solid foundation for digital recording.  If you prefer the sound of analog, you can choose from 24 and 16 track multi-tracks all the way down to 2 track half-inch tape decks.

The console is the heart of the control room which is why we chose to custom design and construct our own using the highest quality op-amps and VCA's in the industry.   This results in a low noise, high head room board suitable for the most demanding of recording jobs.  Each channel has a four band parametric equalizer, compressor and gate for maximum flexibilty.  A full compliment of outboard signal processing gear places any sound you can conceive of at your finger tips.
